Some very intrepid GoodGymmers took to the streets of Fratton to support the Big Local light festival.

Vicki and Lucy were on the door of Victory Business Centre guiding people to the business yard where Harry, Wilson, Sinead, Isaac and Thomas were finding and delivering lanterns ready for the parade. The lantern allocation was quite stressful but team work made the dream work and everyone had a lantern in time for the start of the parade. Wilson and Sinead had the honour of carrying the Fratton Fox, whilst Isaac and Thomas had the whale and Harry got to carry a very large owl! Vicki, Lucy and Jen carried some of the GoodGym lanterns and were tasked with ensuring participants stayed on the pavement.

At the end of the parade we helped retrieve lights and sticks from lanterns ready for reuse next year before exploring some of the other exhibits at St Mary's Church.

Thanks everyone for you help in the madness, FBL is really grateful to of you!
